News: 5 days agoWestbrook-Ikhine recorded three receptions on three targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Raiders.
Spin: Westbrook-Ikhine was on the field for the third-most snaps among the Titans' wide receiver corps, behind both Robert Woods and Treylon Burks. However, Westbrook-Ikhine finished with more targets, receptions and yards than Burks, highlighted by two catches of 15 yards to turn in his best performance of the season. Through three games, Westbrook-Ikhine has five receptions for 66 yards.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Westbrook-Ikhine is positioned for a significant role for Tennessee this season following the offseason departure of A.J. Brown. The 2020 UDFA signing is unlikely to be any lower than third on the depth chart and could rise as high as No. 1 depending on the development of first-round pick Treylon Burks behind Robert Woods. Westbrook-Ikhine was serviceable on 632 snaps last season, posting a solid 8.1 yards per target, but he wasn't a fantasy option, managing two weekly finishes better than 30th and none better than 18th. The 25-year-old is a long shot for consistent flex production in Tennessee's run-heavy scheme. He's best left on waivers.
